I’ve had quite a few injuries and they are a part of gymnastics but it important to remember you can come back stronger from them and to try remain positive anytime I’ve got injured I’ve always found a way to still work on things without using the body part that is injured for example I got a lot of Leg injuries when I was younger and that gave me a chance to work on bars and now that is my strongest piece. Another thing to remember is to make sure that you do your physio exercises properly as they are there to help you recover.
